Prosthetic Records has signed Denver, Colorado's CLINGING TO THE TREES OF A FOREST FIRE. The band's new album is slated for a late spring/early summer release.

Formed in 2006, CLINGING TO THE TREES OF A FOREST FIRE released an EP ("Harmonies From Bleeding Mouths") that year, and followed it up with a full-length effort, "Omega Drunk On The Blood Of Alpha", in 2008 on Debello Recordings. The band's sound has been referred to as "funeral grind," as it's "too slow for grindcore, too fast for doom," and has been compared to the likes of BRUTAL TRUTH, PIG DESTROYER, DISCORDANCE AXIS, EYEHATEGOD and NAPALM DEATH.

Commented vocalist Ethan McCarthy: "Our new CD is being recorded by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio (CEPHALIC CARNAGE, CATHETER, COBALT) and it is our most dynamic, bleakest, and dirtiest material to date. We can't wait to go out and tour on this release, and we are proud to be a part of the Prosthetic roster."

CLINGING TO THE TREES OF A FOREST FIRE has toured tirelessly over the past several years throughout North America, and is currently planning a summer tour with Oregon's BURIALS. The band will also appear at Prosthetic's South By Southwest showcase this Wednesday, March 16 at the Mohawk in Austin along with labelmates THE FUNERAL PYRE, BOOK OF BLACK EARTH, WITHERED, LANDMINE MARATHON and SCALE THE SUMMIT.
